U.S. President Donald Trump's White House counselor Kellyanne Conway reportedly leaked some juicy behind-the-scenes West Wing conversations with reporters at an election-watch party at the British Embassy in Washington Thursday night.
A witness to Conway dishing the dirt quickly created an anonymous Twitter account, @KellyanneLeaks and began tweeting some of the better tidbits.
Politico first reported on Twitter account and indepentently confirmed the conversations had in fact taken place.
One tweet says Conway told reporters that Trump told her to “go out there and say ‘Jim Comey is going to have to wait and see about the tapes.’”
